    ArticleBecause Houston Deserves Better

    Houston, you are an amazing place. You are the home of a thriving arts scene, a mecca of art museums and opera. You are one of the most famous cities in the wonderful, enormous state known as Texas. Not to mention, you are the home of NASA and the Johnson Space Center, where mankind’s triumphs in space travel can continue to... more...

    Last week, we hosted a unique event at Middle Collegiate Church, one of five sister ministries — including Intersections — of the Collegiate Church of New York.

    ArticleHow Queer Evangelicals Brought This Skeptical...

    It happened at the end of recess, after the bell had rung and all the other junior-high kids had gone inside. After beating him in a schoolyard basketball game of “H.O.R.S.E.,” my beefy, mop-topped classmate, whom I’ll call Neil, hurled basketballs at my chest while his friend held my arms back so that I... more...

    ArticleIraq and Afghanistan

    Time is relentless. Sometimes hours pass in a heartbeat; other times, years unfold without our even seeming to notice. On October 15, President Obama announced a reversal in U.S. policy in Afghanistan, saying that American forces will remain until at least 2017, beyond the length of his second term in office. Back in 2008, then Senator... more...

    ArticleDragged To Drag: We Lip-Sync For The Lord

    Growing up as a gay male in the 60’s and 70’s, with the wider LGBT community just beginning to open the door to the great closet, the culture of our invisible community was hidden from me. Living and growing in the world as it was, I often felt like I had been kidnapped and forced to live amongst a people that were not my... more...

    ArticleWhat Everett C. Parker Gave Me

    Editor’s note: Everett Parker was tough and feisty. He had to be in order to take on the racism during the civil rights movement and beyond through his pioneering work on behalf of the public interest in media. But as his wife, Geneva, became ill towards the end of her life, I was privileged to witness his softer side as he cared... more...

    ArticleGood News in a Weary World

    Lately, it has seemed that each new day brings another discouraging headline, making it increasingly difficult to remain buoyant when there so much sludge to weigh us down. Whether it be dysfunction in Washington or carnage in the Middle East, persistently unsettling economic news, or the impact of climate change on the world’s... more...

    ArticleThe Future of Theatre for Social Change

    Two weeks ago I visited my alma mater, SUNY Geneseo, as one of three guest artists invited to provide workshops on what I call theatre for social change. I describe this as theatre that explicitly addresses social issues in a constructive way. In my experience it usually engages an audience through more than just the performance - ie... more...

    ArticleDr. Ben Carson and Islam

    With his poll numbers rising, increased attention has been directed at Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson. His reserved, mild-mannered approach to campaigning has been a huge contrast to the bellicose front runner Donald J. Trump, causing deeply conservative Republicans, especially evangelicals, to gravitate to him as an... more...

    ArticleHow My Queer Son Became More Than A Blessing To Me

    When I was pregnant with my son, my thoughts were muffled with unspeakable joy, of course, coupled with a touch of fear; as well as the sounds of 2am feedings, dirty diapers, fatigue, birthday parties filled with screaming crumb snatchers, 3 meals a day, playing games, lots of questions, and being able, by God's grace and mercy,... more...
